• {DIY} Washi Eggs + Easter Egg Centerpiece

    I’ve got another fun DIY for you today from Mariana from So Much Life.  She’s sharing a fun washi tape Easter egg project with us today with a bonus project of making your washi eggs into a cute table centerpiece.  The first project is perfect for those of you with little ones too – a no mess way to decorate eggs.  Enjoy!

    What you’ll need for both projects:  washi tape, hardboiled eggs, egg carton box, ribbon of choice, skewers, hot glue gun, acrylic paint & paint brush
    Project 1:
    Step 1: Paint the half egg carton box and let it dry.
    Step 2: While the paint dries, coat the eggs one by one with washi tape, and give it a patchwork look.
    Step 3: Arrange the eggs in the painted box.
    Project 2:
    Step 1: Place a dash of hot glue on the tip of the stick and carefully enter the egg. Pour more hot glue around the egg just to fix it (with polystyrene eggs, do not use hot glue, just insert the stick into the egg).
    Step 2: Coat the eggs with washi tape pieces until it is fully covered.
    Step 3: Tie a ribbon at the end of the egg (where the stick starts) and tie a little bow on it!

    Aren’t those so cute? I’m really loving the washi egg idea, and you could do it on plastic eggs or hardboiled (or even foam ones). If you do it on plastic eggs you could decorate each half seperately so you can still put goodies inside for the little ones.

    Here’s a little roundup of other ways I love to decorate eggs for Easter:

    What’s your favorite way to decorate eggs?  Charlie and I will be coloring them the old fashioned way, although this tip makes it much easier for little hands.  Happy decorating!

      what a brilliant idea – I LOVE WASHI TAPE. It’s awesome how it looks like patchwork on the eggs – so pretty.

    •  Ice Cube = it's Friday! Cause, FRIDAY. duh. #byefelicia #optimist #quincyrhys  THREE MONTHS OLD (and two days)! Wow. I cannot believe it. You might be the smiley-est baby I've ever met, which is saying a lot considering how miz you were your first few weeks of life. You are doing so much better with your reflux (thank you Prevacid!) and can finally lay flat, don't scream in your infant seat, and mostly tolerate the bath. You still freak out a little when I try to take you places, but staying home for three months will do that to ya. We're slowly venturing out, taking walks, and getting a bit more social. You still love to nurse and be worn but you also love being put in your bouncer and on your playmat/gym. You are babbling like crazy, laughing, smiling at your brothers a lot (even Calvin, even when he's a little rough with his love). They both love you so much and think you are so cute. Tonight Charlie said "Quincy, how cute are you!? No, seriously, HOW CUTE ARE YOU!?" You weigh a whopping 15 pounds (your brothers were only 13.5 at 4 months!) You have so many rolls I have to make sure you aren't hiding food or growing a garden in them. And you have sweaty feet! It's so weird. Your night sleep is not bad but not amazing - you sleep from 7:30 or 8 pm till 1:30 or 2 am, eat, and then go back to sleep but lately are waking up every 1.5-2 hrs after that even though you don't seem to be hungry. You still sleep in the rock-n-play so I'm hoping to get you in your bassinet soon since your reflux is improving. Calvin was sleeping 10-12 straight hours already. But you take great naps - one 3 hour nap in the morning and usually a 2 hr nap in the afternoon. You're pretty dependable that way, and for the record both of your brothers struggled with naps for a while. I'd rather have more night sleep but I'll take what I can get. You've discovered your hands and are trying to suck your thumb/fist. When you cry, you really cry. Like full on wailing or no crying at all. And you have white duck fluff sticking up all over your head. I love how you stretch and pucker your lips when I take you out of the swaddle and how when you first wake up and focus your eyes on me you greet me with the biggest smile ever. Every single time.  #quincysmonthbymonth
       The windows are open and a breeze is blowing in the smell of the night blooming jasmine outside. Calvin is napping. Quincy is nursing. Chili is cooking. I got decent sleep last night and had a productive morning. We have family plans with friends this evening. The wine is chilling. I got these flowers from Trader Joes for $7 and the ranunculus are the prettiest yellow. They reminded me of someone which reminded me to stop and appreciate every single thing I just listed and more. Every giggle, every smile, every breath, every cuddle. Every quiet moment. Every loud moment. Every single moment. Everything.  Neighborhood strollin' with 2 of ma 3 homies #calvinandquincy
